"Fasted weight training is not the catabolic, performance-sapping menace that many claim. A bout of strength training, even when it’s done during a fasted period, will still lead to muscle being gained."

Episode 2422: Keith Wilson of KeithWilsonCounseling.com discusses how to handle problems in relationships by teaming up with your partner against the issue, rather than seeing your partner as the problem. For instance, if a husband struggles with being faithful, his honesty about being attracted to someone else can be seen as an opportunity to work together against the problem. Keith emphasizes that core human qualities, such as attraction to others or the thrill of taking risks, are normal and shouldn't be confused with the problems that arise when these qualities are mishandled. The key is to recognize these underlying qualities and address the actual problem together. If one partner is uncomfortable or unable to handle certain discussions, it may indicate that the problem has affected them too, requiring both partners to seek help.

Episode 2420: Jessica's inquiry about plant-based omega-3 sources versus fish omega-3s for heart health is addressed with insightful details. The episode explores different types of omega-3 fats, like ALA in walnuts and EPA, DHA in fish, emphasizing DHA's role in brain health. While plant sources lack significant EPA/DHA, algae are presented as a viable alternative. However, regular consumption of algae or seaweed can be challenging and potentially excessive in iodine.

Recommended dosing is 250-300 mg of combined EPA and DHA, with a recommendation to choose supplements verified for quality and purity by organizations like USP or NSF. Quotes to ponder: "Instead of getting our omega-3 fats from fish, maybe we can get them from walnuts, flaxseeds, or even algae." "DHA is the most abundant type of omega-3 fatty acid found in the brain and is important in maintaining nerve cell structure and function." "Some sources suggest finding a supplement that contains 250-300 mg of combined EPA and DHA."
